Abstract

Impaired quality of life (QoL) has been reported in patients with Cushing’s syndrome even after biochemical cure, with worse QoL outcomes compared to patients with other pituitary adenomas [1]. A variety of physical, neuropsychosomatic, psychological, and sociodemographic factors have been found to influence QoL parameters in patients with Cushing’s syndrome [1, 2]. A systematic review by Andela et al. found that QoL outcomes such as physical functioning, bodily pain, and general health improved after surgical or pharmaceutical interventions in 6 of the 8 studies involving patients with Cushing’s syndrome.
